There is nothing like getting out of school and heading to the mountain for an afternoon/evening of skiing and snowboarding. Students will be picked up from Wilkins Elementary School or AMS and driven to Crotched Mountain Ski and Ride in Bennington NH. Students will have the opportunity to rent equipment, take a lesson and have some free skiing time before heading back to Wilkins School by 8:10pm.
Chaperones Needed: Parents are more than welcome to chaperone on this program. If you are not a snow sports kind of person, we can still use you in the lodge or at the bottom of the slopes. If you are a skier or snowboarder, we would love to have you join us on the mountain.
